Spotted - Maserati Bora

Just when I least expected, there it was. Another 70's super car. This time the svelte Maserati Bora making an appearance in Redmond on a beautiful Saturday morning a few weeks ago. This sleek Giugiaro design shares it's platform with a smaller V6-powered brother called the Merak. Easily recognized by its brushed stainless roof, this V8-powered rocket was designed to compete with the DeTomaso Mangusta, Ferrari BB512, and other supercars of the era. A product of the influence of the then owners Citroen, its shares a lot of the hydraulic wizardry with the big Citroens of the era.
